Day 16: Nicknames
(Oops!! I missed a day!)
Well, it is hard to speak of nicknames when using a pseudonym. Any nickname that I mention generally refers back to my real name. The reason I want to keep my real name out of this is I like having this blog to share thoughts and vent feelings. If my congregations knew about it, I could get into a fair amount of trouble.
There are some that I can refer to that do not reference my name. One is Preacher Boy (for obvious reasons). Another is Steve (for not so obvious reasons).
Steve came from a t-shirt I had that had a Rorschach on the front and on the back said "My name is not Steve" The Rorschach was a marketing brainstorm I had that didn't get off the ground: I was going to make shirts with ink blots and call them Rorshirts. The "My name is not Steve" was a mistake a shirt place made so I got the shirt free. When I wore the shirt at camp, the name Steve stuck.
